There were a variety of different techniques suggested, but the most popular responses suggested using cola to help shift the problem. 

One woman said: “Overnight use cola in the toilet but don’t flush it until the morning.”

A second commented: “A large bottle of cola, pour it down the loo and leave for at least 24 hrs. Any cola will do. I get mine from Aldi for only 47p.”

A third said: “Pour a litre of cola in the loo and leave overnight. I found that it worked better than using baking soda and white vinegar.”

Another user suggested: “Put the whole bottle of cola down the toilet and leave it to sit overnight or at least a good few hours. 

“I did this with my toilet which was covered in tough limescale and the stains were all gone by the morning with no scrubbing.”

One Facebook user revealed: “My son and daughter-in-law both get the same in their houses and they both use cola down the toilet overnight and they’ve said that it works a treat.”

Another cleaning fan noted: “Cola will resolve the limescale. It is as cheap as chips and can be used on multiple items.”

What is a drink loved by many, cola actually contains three acids – citric acid, tartaric acid and phosphoric acid. 

Each of the acids helps remove common deposits such as limescale.

Surprisingly, cola can contain more phosphoric acid than many cleaning sprays and not only is it a cheap method, but it’s quick and easy too.
